that joe manchin has told a west virginia radio station that he is working with others, with democrats and republicans, on the universal background check. also on closing the gun show loophole. joe manchin, who, of course, campaigned for the office holding a rifle. this is a big change. >> well, for joe manchin, this is a critical time. he was just reelected to a full-term. he has a bit of breathing room, and this is an issue that he is willing to really try and find some ground. he will talk about his a-plus rating with the national rifle association, and a state like west virginia has a long history and kind of cultural tie to guns so, he understands it from that point of view. at the same time he is saying he wants to try to find a way to do more. now, today senator dianne feinstein introduced her assault weapons ban of 2013. she had been responsible for one back in the 1990s, and that is probably a step where joe manchin is not yet ready to go. is there a place where democrats can get together around something that relates to dealing with the gun violence issue, and also these othe
. i don't think joe manchin will be there despite his conversations s.schumer going to do it and if it's a big city guy you can kill the bill right up front? who is going to be the country boy or country woman who says this is going to be reasonable and let's have a majority vote for it? >> you're right. the crucial thing, particularly in the senate, we need some republicans or non-of the traditional characters. schumer and feinstein, boxer, you know, those folks are going to be there. we need mark kirk in illinois to make this an issue. he voted for closing the gun show loophole and he's in the house. we need dan coates back in the senate from indiana. if we can get a few of those republicans to stand up and say, hey, this isn't taking your guns away. this isn't a second amendment issue. this is a public safety issue, a law and order issue that will help our communities, then i think we can get it done. >> will you get any votes in the south? any votes in the south, any votes in the rocky mountain states, any votes out there in conservative country, utah, montana, idaho? >> yeah. we c
in the congress are not anti-gun in any way. bobby casey is not going to be there. i don't think joe manchin is going to be there despite his conversations. is schumer going to do it? if it's a big city guy, you can kill the idea right up front. who is the country boy or country woman who will do this thing? let's get a majority vote for it? who's going to do that? >> you're right. i think the crucial thing, particularly in the senate, is we need some republicans or some none of the traditional characters, schumer and feinstein, boxer, you know, those folks will be there. we need mark kirk in illinois to make this an issue. he voted for closing the gun show loophole when he was in the house. we need dan coats back in the senate from indiana. he voted for some of these things in the early' 90s. if we can get a few republicans to stand up and say, this isn't taking your guns away, this isn't a second amendment issue, this is a public safety issue, a law and order issue, it will help our communities, then i think we can get it done. >> will you get any votes in the south? >> but it's going to t
not too long ago. the question is will they go single digit? on abc this week senator joe manchin had some things to say about getting things done in both chambers. listen to this, and i'll get your reaction. >> okay. >> i've yet to have a bipartisan meeting that's been organized where republicans and democrats in the senate sit down and work through their problems. think about just in the senate we don't have that type of dialogue going on from democrats and republicans. we don't even know our colleagues over in the house. >> don't even know our colleagues over in the house. you know, the whole fiscal cliff negotiations, we saw that. speaking all throughout the lead up to that deal coming down. members of the house didn't know what was happening over in the senate, and even as the senator was saying there, senators not knowing what the leadership in the senate were doing. >> well, so to go to manu's point, too, when we're going from crisis to crisis it's important to remember that congress has created these crises, not something sprung upon them, their inability to negotiate long-term dea
of staff for west virginia senator joe manchin and joe watkins was an aid with president george h.w. bush. i want to start with you becausas we have seen, former congresswoman gabby giffords and her husband mark kelly this week launching a super pac americans for possible solutions or responsible solutions, excuse me, other interest groups, mayors against illegal guns are led and financed by new york mayor michael bloomberg. they're raising a lot of money. one thing i want to point out is that gabby giffords' new group, the americans for responsible solutions has gotten a $1 million donation from a couple in texas and trial lawyers there who were politically active. do you think this type of money and this type of support can beat the nra at its own game? >> i don't think it's a matter of plague partisan politics or anti-nra. i think every american wants to make sure that we have schools that are safe and that our kids are protected no matter what and any cause, and i don't think it's a matter of liberal, moderate or conservative in this matter because it's about human beings and about am
way. bobby casey is not going to be there. i don't think joe manchin is going to be there despite his conversations. is schumer going to do it? if it's a big city guy, you can kill the idea right up front. who is the country boy or country woman who will do this thing? >> you're right. i think the crucial thing, particularly in the senate, is we need some republicans or some -- none of -- the traditional characters, schumer and feinstein, boxer, you know, those folks will be there. we need mark kirk in illinois to make this an issue. he voted for closing the gun show loophole when he was in the house. we need dan coats back in the senate from indiana. he voted for some of these things in the early' 90s. if we can get a few republicans to stand up and say, this isn't taking your guns away, this isn't a second amendment issue, this is a public safety issue, a law and order issue, it will help our communities, then i think we can get it done. >> will you get any votes in the south? >> illinois and indiana pushing -- >> any votes in the rocky mountain states, any votes in conservative cou
, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of a universal background check. nra households, 85%, chris. we have said that number many times. but going back to this group of senators who are working on this deal reportedly, tom coburn, mark kirk, we know his ties to illinois and the chicago area, of course. and chuck schumer and we have seen legislation in new york, even i just saw a report that governor cuomo approval rating took a dip as a result of some people believing he went too far with new legislation in the state but when you look at this group, these four men here, are they the best faces to at least get something moving coming to background checks? set aside legislation on assault weapons. but just on background checks and widely supported. >> i mean, i think it's a good diverse mix in terms of if you will, centrist conservative democrats, moderate democrats. you ha
think we need to do our job. >> senator joe manchin, thank you so much for coming on the program. >> thank you, chris. >>> well, it was a fun ride while it lasted. gas prices though are on the rise again. cnbc's mandy drury is here with what's moving your money. >> chris, after months of dropping we're all enjoying that ride. it seems that gas prices are creeping up again. you've got at the moment the average u.s. price of a regular gallon, it surged about seven cents in the last three weeks. sitting at $3.30 a month ago, chris, we were at $3.27. mind you, we are still lower than the $3.39 of a year ago. diesel, i do believe, is remaining unchanged at around $3.96 a gallon. if you want to know where the highest prices are, lowest prices are, of the places surveyed in 48 states, salt lake city has the average lowest price, long island new york has the highest at $3.75. unlucky us. >> cnbc's mandy drury. thank you. >> thank you. >>> forget about who took home those golden globe statues. e entertainment got a look at the best dressed. here are the favorites. videoey deschane in red.
then you should listen up to what center joe manchin had to say from west virginia where he had the courage to say he recognized the need to review these issues of gun safety measure hes or senator warner from virginia or senator casey from pennsylvania. >> they are all from the east coast. my question is have you heard anybody from the midwest talk about it? >> absolutely. senator tester from montana has weighed in on the issue, as well. the point is these are senators from strong nra states. and they understand the need to address this issue. >> and that's why harry reid doesn't want to take it on because he is from a strong nra state because in las vegas, they are have christmas wreathes made out of bullet casings. i saw it when i was there in december. >> but the point simply is this -- >> harry reid has a local skin in the game. >> sadly we have to wrap this up, but i hope -- >> carol, if i can -- >> i got go. >> grneorge herbert walker bushs a great man. >> agree on that. >> me, too. robert zimmerman, and that navarro, thank you so much. >>> gun control activists take on walmart. a ra
. these are unnecessary weapons, unnecessary magazines. this is common accepts. sense. >> joe manchin and a lot of other people that have hunted their entire life said i've never gone into the woods needing more than ten bullets. it's extreme. you know, that argument that wayne lapierre said that excites some in the base, just like those people that were excited at those last-minute romney rallies, said, you know, if a bad person has a gun, you need a good person with a gun. that's the only way you can stop a bad person with a gun. he was talking, of course, about having armed guards in every school in america. and great, i'd love to have an armed guard at my children's schools. please, put them there. if we've got the money, let's do it. but you know what happens with anybody that knows anything about guns, robert, with an armed guard standing out front of a school with a pistol or a revolver, even a glock, which he wouldn't have, a guy walks in across the street and lifts his bushmaster and blows the guy away in two seconds and walks over the good guy's body. >> right. >> it's just like you said, why
